I was thinking of what else I could make with eggnog, and I thought to make a pie similar to a buttermilk pie. I added some more spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, then I served it with freshly whipped cream.
This recipe developed for Babble’s Family Kitchen.
Yield: Serves 4
2 cups eggnog, at room temperature
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
3 eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon rum extract
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon or a dash freshly grated nutmeg
pre-made store-bought rolled pie crust
1 cup fresh cream, whipped (add 1/8 teaspoon rum extract if desired when whipping)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Roll out pie crust in a deep dish pie plate. Crimp edges.
3. Combine sugar and flour in a large bowl. Mix well. Add melted butter and mix again. Add eggnog and mix again. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Add vanilla and rum extract. Mix well. Add cinnamon and nutmeg, mix well. Pour mixture into pie crust.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, or until set in the middle. Let cool completely before serving. Pie will rise when baking and then after cooling, will fall.
